I discovered that there is an instrumental version of The Blackening on youtube:
warning: first 90 seconds of this vid is an intro (*looks at Chris )

You can find the rest after the video finishes
I actually liked some stuff off their first two albums but got tired of them. I really didn't like this album either but it sounds pretty good listen instrumentally. I guess Rob's vocals turn me away for some reason.
The Blackening is actually my favorite Machine Head album.
